Tropical Storm Isaac Update #2

Shell GoM Deep Water Operations

(This information is up-to-date as of 11:00 a.m. Central, August 24, 2012. Further updates will be provided as needed.)

With the continued slight westerly shift in the track of Tropical Storm Isaac in the eastern GoM, Shell is preparing for evacuations of non-essentials in the eastern and central Gulf of Mexico.  These personnel are not essential to core producing and drilling operations and will not be able to perform their normal work functions during the passing storm conditions.  Drilling operations have been suspended on some eastern and central assets.   No production has been impacted.

We will continue to monitor weather reports and respond accordingly.  The information on this site will be updated as necessary.

Shell-specific production shut-in numbers are not issued externally.
